Heavy Hands

Connor and Phil bury the memory of Ed Gallo, and break down the incredible and, apparently, final victory of Khabib Nurmagomedov.

  • Khabib retires a mystery, mostly because he was smart enough to keep it that way
  • Robert Whittaker EVOLVES into... Robert Whittaker
  • Silva vs Hall, Fili, vs Mitchell, and more

This week Connor and Phil... no, hold on, Phil's gone. It's a different guy. A wrestling guy named Ed Gallo, here to talk about an exceedingly wrestley fight: Khabib vs Gaethje.

  • We seem to understand Khabib's game just well enough to keep picking against him like idiots
  • How Justin Gaethje is going to win
  • Where Michael Chandler fits into the UFC's lightweight division, & how this weekend's alternate matches up with the two main eventers
  • Is Robert Whittaker washed, or just getting over the hump? Is it safe to be asking this question within earshot of Jared Cannonier?
  • Cutelaba-Ankalaev 2. There's nothing more to say, but we say it anyway

Connor and Phil break down the tantalizing upcoming battle between Brian Ortega and the Korean Zombie, and celebrate the greatest KO in EA UFC history.

  • Did a career-defining loss to Max Holloway hide how much better Brian Ortega's boxing was getting? Has it gotten even better? What does the OG KZ think about this?
  • Is flyweight the perfect shallow pool for a muscle shark like Jessica Andrade?
  • plus: Sandhagen-Moraes and Kevin Holland's most promising pupil
